Welcome Aboard!

Cour­tesy of The Econ­o­mist, a look at what truth­ful in-flight announce­ments might sound like.

Your life-jack­­et can be found under your seat, but please do not remove it now. In fact, do not both­er to look for it at all. In the event of a land­ing on water, an unprece­dent­ed mir­a­cle will have occurred, because […]
